In brief: If there was...

... There would be no need to see a dentist.
Dental care is not just a mouthful of toothpaste. Please see a dentist to restore that tooth.

In brief: No

Whatever home-made remedy you do might appear to solve the problem, but all you are doing is letting an insidious process (carious infection) progress to the point of reaching the dental pulp, at which point you're going to need to restore the tooth at greater cost after you get a root canal.
It is best to restore the tooth (a filling) as soon as you can and avoid the root canal.

See your dentist ASAP to remove the decay and put a filling in its place before is too late.

In brief: No.

You should entrust your natural teeth to a dentist; that is best.

In brief: No!

You should not be doing your own dentistry.
The first step is to have x-rays and exam done to determine the exact problem. A proper treatment plan and options would then be given to you. Please see a dentist as soon as possible.
